After the end of the Great Patriotic war in the year 1946, the world's workers were united, and the Peace loving people of
the Socialist Republic of Soviet Russia could finally be in peace. In the year 2008 the eyes looked on the stars, as the
first colony on mars was established. This was to be the beginning of a new era for the worker's of mankind...
It is the year of 2316, the Soviet Union has laid it's mark on the galaxy, after the invention of Sukhonov drive in the year
2101 (technical classification as "Node-Drive") the Union spread to the stars with rising rate. This is the sector C592i1,
and it will be claimed for the people's of Soviet Russia.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello folks, I'm known as "Mannerheim" at SotS forums and "Kekkonen" at DoV forums, since Space Voyager so kindly
invited me to post this here too, I couldn't refuse.

Right, I'm going to make this playthrought quick.

As I've selected my Badge and the cool Kosmonaut, I set the opponent random, I like to keep it as a surprise, and
because it really doesn't matter when I've got the peoples fury, and strenght on my side, and the might of the Glorious
Red Space Forces.


After years of terraforming, industrializing, and populating the planet "Solaris" in sector C592i1, the workers of the
Socialist Republic were set to expand, in the name of Russia, for the people of the Union...

The officers of intelligence snapped to attention as I entered the Command Deck.
"At ease, how are the factories?"
"Commodore, Factories on Solaris are reporting in and are ready for construction projects" Answered the young
Lieutnant, standing on his station with a big-green screen, filled with various informations about the infrastructure and
industry status on the planet Solaris.
"Good, and what about the Automated Units for our factories?"
"The designs should arrive at the end of this week"
"Excellent" I thought, the Automated Units could signically increase the production efficiency of our Ship-Construction
ports on planets,
and it would decrease the cost as no more nearly as much workers were required to build our glorious ships for the Red
Navy.
Posted Image

First part of our task was to construct Colony ships along with a tanker, the reactors of our ships consumed large
amounts of uranium on long trips between solar systems, therefore a tanker was a must for fleets to Node-Jump to
refuel the ships incase of fuel-shortage.
Posted Image

After the construction of the first colonization fleet was complete, and sent away, 2 scout-type ships were build. And both
of them were sent to 2 different systems to explore. Not for long, the Colonization fleets arrives to their target system, and
immediately finds a habitable planet, rank 7 in class-specification. This expedition was more than a success.
Posted Image

In the following days, the new colony grew and terraformed their planet, building slowly but surely their infrastructure and
industry. After the scouts discovered habitable but way too much expensive terraforming requiring planets, along with
new node tunnels, it was decided to build more scout ships to search these systems more efficiently.
Meanwhile, our "Automated Units" designs had finally arrived along with couple of scientist to help us research new
inventions in the field.
With the help of new scientist, the scientists were tasked with designing Orbital Foundries to speed up the construction and the cost of our ships. After over a week and new explored systems and habitable planets, their porject was complete
ahead of schedule. With the new foundries, we are now able to research methods of welding Titanium Armour-Plating to
our space ships.
Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
But it was noted, that the project would take long, and it was decided that our ships were better with more powerful
weaponry, and because our knowledge of those was quite wide, it wouldn't take as long. Our ships may not be well
armored but they would atleast be well armed! Not to forget our Great Leader, the man who set us to the path to the
stars; Josef Stalin's motto: "Quantity has a quality all of it's own"
Our numbers overwhelm any opposition we may encounter.
Posted Image
Meanwhile, our scouts has found a very suitable planets for us.
And immediately colonization fleets were build and send on their way.

And so the Glorious Imperium of Socialist Republic of Russia grows...

PHENOMENAL, Kekkonen! Thanks for starting this AAR here, too!

Just a note to other readers;

this is not a regular SotS AAR, this one is played with a game modded through and through, Okim's ACM!

So never before seen techs, ships, art... the whole lot! Can't wait.

Are you trying to post A LOT of pics? In my AARs I needed to post two posts with some "cooldown" time in between because we have a pic limit. Though it did not say "the page does not exist"... Could you just try posting again?

Still, if you're able to post other stuff to this thread, it seems likely that there's some content in your post upsetting things. Try chopping it in half, and posting the first bit; if that's accepted, then post the next chunk in another post and see what happens.

Whenever you get the error, cut the suspect text in half again, and keep going until you've got it narrowed down.

"Week by week, the Soviet Russia grows, with no opponents, and small obstacles, there is nothing out there to stall our progress of taking the entire galaxy. Our workers live happy lives, everyone have a working place in the society, and the word "War" is becoming a thing of the past day by day. But that doesn't mean that the Great Russia should give up defending itself! Unknown dangers stalk in the shadows and dark corners of the galaxy, we must keep our navies armed and ready at all times! Sudden emergencies in the developing colonies need the help of the navy, and colonies need them to guard themselfs from the dangerous asteroids that randomly threatens colonies around our imperium. But none of these are to stop our progress of becoming the rightful owners of the galaxy!

And now for our galactic news:
News from the Lavian system about the new..."


The commodore sipped from his mug, as glorious our great imperium is, they could seriously improve these "motivating" broadcasts. Leaning back on his chair, feets crossed on the table, sipping his coffee, and watching the television. The Commodore felt peacefull. Having organized the construction of ships and organizing the new established colonies, and giving orders for the numerous fleets for months nonstop had taken all his time, but during his career, he had learned to appreciate peaceful moments like these.

Then there was a knock on his personal quarters' door

"Sight"

Slowly, he took off his legs from the desk one by one, leaned forward, and rised from his chair. Clearly taking his time. Then the Commodore proceed to walks towards the door, "so much for the 'nap time" he thought out loud. Coming to the door, he straightened his Uniform, and pressed the button on the door.

With a small "w-hisss" the door opened as the hydraulic pumps released pressure. Infront of the Commodore was standing one of his Lieutnants from the command station, Daina Alekseev. Holding a papersheaf on her left hand, pressed agains the hip. And With the right hand on a salute position.

"Sir" Announced the Lieutnant. "Scientist report breakthrought on their research, also the Colonization fleet Zeta 767 has reached their destination along with the expedition fleet "Valerinus 4". And the Colonization Fleet Alpha 5 has reached system "Vision" on their way to the planet "Thundara", but they have stopped due to lack of fuel..."
Posted Image

Almost overwhelming amount of information coming out from Daina's mouth with continuing feed coming out at one time would have even confused Putin. Trying to clear the new cluster of information in his head, the commodore cut the ever-contuing flow of reports:
"Uh, ye- yes, that will be sorted, let's proceed on these tasks on the Command Center"
"Yes Sir"
"Phew" thought the Commodore, talk about stopping the flow of Volga!
Walking to the Command Center, the crew snapped to attention, after giving "At ease" responce the crew returned to their tasks at handling the various communications and information flow handlings.

First job was to organize the colonization of planet. Then divert the Supply Fleet "Gulag" to the stranded Colonization fleet on System "Vision" and begin the resupply progress. As the Communications officer begun sending the various orders to the fleets, the Commodore put his attention to the report at hand about the success of the Research Project on "Heavy Guns"
This new turre-, and guntype increased the firepower of the Red Navy ships greatly. But to organize many ships into combat, they needed command ships, and what those command ships needed? Battle Computers. And so the scientist were dispatched to new task.
But one thing was beyond him thought.

Why can't the damned scientist research several projects at same time?

After a week, 2 planets has been succesfully colonized and were already starting to terraform. Meanwhile, tiny, but habitable planet, named "Regis" by the Expedition Fleet "Delta" was discovered and marked on the sector maps.

Posted Image

2 Days after, reports about big and habitable planet was announced to me by the communications officer. Taking a look at it myself on one of the big screens on the walls, I noticed the size-classification of the planet: Class-7! This is the biggest habitable planet we've seen for a while. Immediately I order colonization fleet to be sent to this temporarily named planet "Foo" (those scouts must seriously lack imagination, oh well, nothing that can't be changed thought)
Posted Image

Suddenly, my planetary management officer "Nanita" loudly reports: "Severe overharvesting in progress sir!" I turn to look at her "What do you mean, severe overharvesting?" I asked with annoyed tone. "Multiple planets are losing their permanent resources due to overharvesting" I take a glance at the screen, and say: "It's a common Russian Procedure during colony terraforming to boost the progress by overharvesting, theres nothing severe about it, we could just replace the resources by mining them from other systems, and those planets already have quite lot of resources anyway!"
Posted Image

"Uhhh..yes sir, of course sir!" she says.
"Sev-, I mean, overharvesting in progress on the planet Piscium Sir. The terraforming is on the middle phases, should we order to stop the overharvesting?" She then reported.
After thinking for a second, I respond "Yes, it's better to stop now"
Posted Image

During the following weeks, the Red Navy Expedition fleets managed to map half of the sector, providing precious information about habitable planets to us. With the help fo these informations the loyal workers of Russia colonized numerous planets. The research on Battle Computers was finally finished on schedule. Providing logistical organization and increase of ships in combat. First fleet to receive this new Command Ship was named "Battlegroup ILJUSHY"

Truly the might of the Russia grows day by day

I actually have played the game much further than the images show, it's only about uploading those images and then come up with a fancy fan-fiction'ish to cope with it

But thanks to my ADHD, it's incredibly hard. Not to mention studies taking most of my attention

Glorious Update

Posted Image
Today the entire Soviet Empire celebrates, shops are closed for whole day as people flood the streets
to watch the countless Red Army parades across the Soviet Russia and it's planets. This day marks the end of the
"Great Patriotic War" 270 Years ago as our glorious nation under the leadership of Josef Stalin, the man who
set us to the path to the star, led the nation to victory against the facists, but also, against the power-hungry, greedy capitalists of the Western Nations. And uniting the Earth's workers under single rule of People's Republic of Soviet Russia.

In the heart of our Glorious Soviet Union, in the Capital City Moscow, a Grand Parade was held, with the most elite, best equipped troops of the Red Army marched on the Red Square, with our great leader receiving the parade from the same balcony, which many, many other leaders of our nations have done the same.


With the invention of battle computers, we quickly begin the construction of these command ships for all of our combat fleets stationed across our controlled space. Meanwhile, our scouts discovered another habitable planet, a very small one, ranking in level 1 on size classification.
Posted ImagePosted Image
I was soon contacted by one of our leading scientist, explaining me that we should focus on Genetical Manipulation. Which would allow us to possibly come up with deep-sleep methods to ease the transport of population to new colonies.
Posted Image
As I was in the middle of organizing the new colony ships to their destinations, I received another "Overharvesting" report from Nanita, the soon former Planetary Management Officer.
Posted Image
I tell them to continue the overharvesting until 8th of the planet has been terraformed.

Within Couple of Weeks, Our first Fleet to Receive it's first Command Ship, named "Combat Group CnC" in planet Piscium is named according to our Naval Organization doctrines as "Combat Group SHILKA" This powerfull fleet will be one of the many of our frontier Defencive Forces to shield our planets from any danger.
Posted Image
Meanwhile, our scouts have examined another system, and named one of it's habitable planets as "Bob" with strange remarks and hints, as far as I've understood, its from somekind of kid's animation movie from 21th century. Hmmmm..
Posted Image
After Couple of days, another Combat Group has been established at planet "Thundara", a planet with unforgiving winters that are a challenge even for the people from Siberia.
Posted Image
As you can see, we have placed names for the different variations for the common destroyer frame of the Navy, with the currently newest model being named as TT-800 series. A very stubborn and easily modificable model, with tens of variations for it, from a supply ship to an Railgun Destroyer.

The numbers that come after 8, are the model-types, such as our newest Destroyer model TT-892, which has gone multiple upgrades, which was at the time of the first report model TT-830. With unmodded, basic Fission Drive, armed only with weak 200mm Naval Guns. Right now our newest model is TT-892 that has improved Fission Drive, and along with 200mm Turrets, 2 Medium-Turrets with doudle-barreled 407mm Guns.

We have currently 2 variations in our service, the TT-892-"D" model, which is our standard Destroyer, and the TT-207 "M" model, the "D" stands for "Destroyer", and the "M" stands for "Missile". And as you can guess, model TT-207 is the support ship of our fleets, armed with 2 turrets designed that launch SN-61/C Homing Space-Missiles.

Our standard Combat Group consist of 1 CnC ship, 4 TT-207-M's, and 6 TT-892-D's.


With things organized ahead, I could rest for a couple of days. And as fortunate as the times were for the Soviet Union, our scientist accomplished their task ahead of schedule, in couple of days! They are now able to research Suspended-Animation. It's pretty much self-evident what this tech can do.
Posted ImagePosted Image

Meanwhile, another Fleet constructed to defend our planets. And another system with habitable planets was explored. As you can see in the picture from the monitoring screen, our scouts are busy with exploring the sector along with tankers moving to planned supply-points for them. Also the routes for some of our Combat Groups on their way to certain systems to defencive roles are visible.
Posted Image

So far, everything going according to kei-*cough*plan.

35 years later....

Posted Image

"Two weeks ago the Military leaders in Moscow announced a full-scale Combat Practice, mobilizing all the aspects of our Soviet Military Might. Space Navy, Colonial armies, and Air Forces are all to take part in the regular program that takes place every 10 years to "keep it sharp". All men and women enlisted in the military aging between ages 18 and 45, are to report at their local Military office."

With the old Commodore long passed away, new one has taken his position. An old-veteran of the Kaukasus-sector's rebellion, starting as a mere destroyer captain. As the war against the traitors of the motherland went on raging, he quickly moved throught ranks after successfull operations and battles, and couple of suicide missions he was thought not to return from. Vadiuly Tzukovne was a scarred man and a combat-hardened commander of harsh tactics and strategies.

The Soviet control of this sector has been progressively advanced along with new technologies.

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

New colonies being established on a steady pace, at the time, this galaxy was thought to be devoid of any intellegient life. Up until the last month.
All the commondores on all sectors received a Top-Secret message straight from the heart of the Soviet Russia, Commodore only was allowed to see the message.

What was in the message warned the commodores of an hostile alien race discovered in sector C594i6. Only a couple of tens of lightyears away from this one, the first "contact" was nothing but a crude assault on the Deep-Space Relay-Station 17. No details were given about the nature of the assault, but the facts are that the race uses vessels constructed from scrap metal and uses unknown type of FTL-drive, and have telepathic abilities. The KGB wants to keep this a secret from the people, and to prevent any remaining rebels taking this as an opportunity for attempting to make contact with these creatures. This race has been dubbed only as what they reportedly called themselfs, "Zuul"

However, an strict order was given when encountering these creatures: Exterminate
For the motherland.

>Few months forward>

"Commodore, one of our scouts reports that they have made an....contact"
a screen opened with a display of an desert planet, with large red glows dotting it's surface.
Posted Image

The lieutnant looked at the Commodore in excitement
"Commodore, this is our first contact with an intellegient race! What ar-"
"Destroy them"
The lieutnant's face, along with the whole staff, turned from excitement into shock.
Commodore Vadiuly glared at the officers. "What? Relay the order; destroy them"
The staff's faces turned even more into shock
"Are you disobeying me officers? Are you committing a traitorism?"
One of the officers finally got his mouth working
"B-b-b-but Commodore, s-s-shouldn't we try to hail them and negotiate with them? Th-this is our first contact with other intellegient beings"
Vadiuly sighted. "No, unfortunaly this is not" and slowly stood up, as if gathering strenght for what was to come.
"Several months ago..." explained Vadiuly as he started fiddling with the console before him. Various images of space, sectors, and systems appeared on the holoscreen before him. "...One of our relay stations came under attack by unknown forces..." opening up screens of old union news from archives with titles "Rebel attack on Red Navy Station?" "Station destroyed in ruthless attack" "Still under investigation" "No survivors"  passed on the holoscreen. "the station's crew managed to initiate self-destruct before the attackers managed to hack into the mainframe..." an old new from couple of months ago about issues with pulse-messaging network between the outer colonies opened up on the holoscreen. "Those attackers were not human" Vadiuly said, rising his look from the console. "They were what we are looking at now" pointing at the monitor with the view of the planet still on.
"But Commodore, there were no survivors, how c-" he was stopped by the plank stare of the Commodore.

KGB makes sure there won't be no survivors to tell about the encounter


"Orders straight from the Moscow are clear"
"Destroy them"
Posted Image

The command station looked on the screen, as volleys of shells fell down to the planet. This went on for hours, until the ship detected an radar contact closing in to the planet. An enemy fleet of 18 ships.
Posted Image Posted Image
The ship is ordered to retreat to friendly system.

Meanwhile, Battlegroup SHILKA is stationed at Regis system, the cover-up of military practice should make sure that our citizens don't suspect nothing. But our propaganda has already started introducing our citizens the idea that the aliens out there will be hostile, so when we eventually tell them about this secret war we have been going at for a while, they will be ready.

Our control of this sector is vast, and more fleets will be required to be build.
Posted Image

Meanwhile, our scientist have finished their research on Armour-Piercing rounds, the new cannons designed with them are going to make our ship's gunfire a lot more accurate and far-reaching.
Posted Image
It is time to make a overhaul upgrade of our ships again.

Suddenly, a contact by our returning scout ship from the attack. The enemy is closing in already.
Posted Image

"-*static*-This is Tanker 875, We have encountered hostiles at Laertes system! We are requesting immediate reinforcements, over!"
Posted ImagePosted Image
Copy Tanker 875, hold your position and engage the hostiles, help is on the way.
"Roger that, engaging the enemy. Tanker 875, out!"
Posted Image
Sir, the tanker reports of minimum armaments on that ship, it seems to be a scouting ship.
More of an reason to destroy it officer! They must not be allowed to know where our planets are!

"This is Tanker 875, the enemy is fleeing! I am chasing the enemy. Do you copy? Over."
Copy Tanker 875, do not let the enemy get away

"Enemy in range! Guns 1 & 2, fire!
"Guns 1 & 2 firing!"
"Reporting multiple hits on the target"

This goes for a moment
http://img841.images...0100801f.th.jpg
"Damnit, what the hell is it made of?"
"No effect on the ship commander"
Roger that, pull out and re-arm.

Ha, sorry for doubting, I almost gave up on your AAR! A long vacation? And you seem to be doing very well already, will this be a shortish AAR?
